Hong Kong's newest and longest race.
Something different for 2020...
360 kM, 360 degrees
"Epic" doesn't begin to describe it.
A Race Like No Other...
Friday 10th April - Thursday 16th April (2020)
Total 7 days
360km (or 180km)
Day 1 = 38km
Day 2 = 57km

Day 7 = 57km

Runners will need to be semi self-sufficient, capable of running 10-18km between checkpoints (where water will be provided). Runners will need to carry their own gels/snacks/etc; but will have access to a drop bag at CP2 ("halfway point" each day). For further info, see our FAQs section.
The course will be marked, mainly at junctions or through unclear sections, however unlike shorter races runners should not expect to see a marker/ribbon every 100m. With this in mind, runners are required to download the GPX files (or carry a map).
Due to its unique location (in and around the city of Hong Kong), unlike other multi-stage races, tent accommodation is not a realistic option. Instead, we offer participants three alternatives - dorm accommodation; hotel or hostel; or stay at home. For full details, visit our accommodation section.
$7,200 (HKD) - 360km (no accommodation)
$9,100 (HKD) - 360km (+ 6 nights' accommodation)
$3,600 (HKD) - 180km
The cut-off times each day are quite relaxed (10-12 hours). Our aim is to support you 100% in completing this magnificent event.

What Makes HK360 Truly Unique?
(unlike any other race on the planet)
First off, you’re running a whopping 360km. Almost unheard of. If that doesn’t get your heart thumping and make you dizzy with adrenaline, probably nothing will.
But don't let "360" scare you. In fact if you've run 50Ks in the past, chances are you're ready for this! The unique course format (7 stages over 7 days) was designed specifically for those who have run 40, 50, 70, 100Ks and now ready for a new challenge. By breaking the run into 7 stages, your body has plenty of time to recover. Just take it slow and you'll be amazed. Still not sure? Read this. Or this.
Besides the amazing personal achievement, you’ll be running for a cause greater than yourself – giving the “gift of sight” to several blind people. We figure, if you’re going to thrash your body and push it to the limit, why not do it for a good cause? It’s a total “win-win.”

Reasonable entry fee. One that might surprise you! To see how
HK360 compares to other multi-stage races around the world,
The course itself is breathtaking and mind-blowing at the same time
(and the ONLY RACE IN THE WORLD to fully encircle a world class city).
This is the inaugural event! That means, this is your one & only
chance to be part of the first group to run around Hong Kong.
Be a true trail blazer. History in the making. Step up and be first!
To make this inaugural event a success in every way possible, we are restricting the number of participants to 100 (+30 for the half, 180km). With only 100 runners, our aim is to make the event more personalized, more intimate and full of surprises.
By completing a 360km run, you will join an extremely niche group of “world class” ultra-runners. That’s no BS. Very few people in the history of humanity have ever run 360km in 7 days! It truly is a monumental achievement that will stay with you forever. Who knows? It might even be a turning point in your life…
We want you to finish and feel the victory of success! Therefore, the course is NOT designed to crush and defeat you with ridiculous altitude gains, challenging mountain passes, or running on sand. We figure the distance (360km) is enough of a challenge. Overall, the course is quite flat and follows a lot of the coastal trails and paths. Very beautiful, in fact.
GPS trackers provided to all participants. A rarity! Not only are GPS trackers a great safety feature, but they allow family & friends to follow along in real-time (... all 7 days).
We believe in you! Possibly more than you believe in yourself. If for any reason you're unable to finish the event (highly unlikely), you have FREE entry next year. Yes, you read that correctly... FREE ENTRY. This is a special offer for 2020 runners only.
Cool swag and prizes - including limited edition, long-sleeve Merino wool t-shirt; a special finisher's award; T8 chafe-free underwear; and more
Make 2020 a year to remember! Embrace your own brilliance by doing something extraordinary at Easter...
